20 keyboard shortcuts to speed up your Marketing efforts

Today's blog post is about keyboard shortcuts.

If you're not using them already, what are you waiting for?

Keyboard shortcuts are one of the easiest ways of increasing your efficiency and freeing up time. Ideally, we want to get to a point where we throw away the mouse and operate solely with the keyboard.

Online Marketing, like any profession, is filled to some extent with repetitive tasks which take up a lot of time. By using keyboard shortcuts, many of these tasks can be done much more efficiently.
